On Monday, Interview Magazine has officially shuttered, according to an anonymous source.
“I was working at Interview as a freelancer in one of the editorial departments, but the magazine folded this morning, leaving me without a job,” a source tells COOLS.
The magazine was originally started by Andy Warhol in 1969 and has since gone on to become one of the leading art and fashion magazines in the world. Stars like Grace Jones, Cher, and Winona Ryder have graced the cover of the bygone indie mag.
But according to rumors, the magazine has been going through tough financial times for awhile now. Back in February, Page Six reported that the magazine’s owner Peter Brant hadn’t been paying the rent bill for their offices located on Greene Street in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, leaving staffers kicked out of their snug work digs.
It was only a matter of time until Interview Magazine would join the print mag graveyard, given the fact that even larger media brands like Condé Nast’s Teen Vogue stopped publishing in print back in November.
